Media Cymru is for, and about, Wales with the core of our work focusing on Cardiff Capital Region. We are a driving force for sustainable and inclusive economic growth in the Welsh media sector.

Cardiff and the surrounding region has already situated itself as a major player in the global media industry. We believe in Wales’ potential to further shape the industry through greater funding, training and opportunities for innovation.

Media Cymru is funded through £22m from UK Research and Innovation’s (UKRI) flagship Strength in Places Fund, £3m from Cardiff Capital Region, £1m from Welsh Government, through Creative Wales, and £23m match funding from industry and university partners. A Consortium of 22 partner organisations all with one aim.
